I've been experimenting with sleeping configurations in Spud. Tent up, tent down, one curtain up, two curtains up, no curtains up, curtains as blankets. Nights have been consistently 37° at the lowest, and when Spud is closed up I'm very comfortable.
The tent lets me sit up and read or watch a movie in the evening. It may be worth putting it on, then taking it off before I sleep.
I experienced a 24-hour period of technical challenges that were easily-solved, thanks to friends and the Internet. Dead battery, stuck hatch, rat (solution pending), and a lost wallet. All is well. Things are always working out for me.
Occasionally, I fall into what Chris told me is "awfulizing." I don't like it. I recommend against it. Tell your friends to stop doing it, too. Instead, distract yourself by looking at this leaf disguised as a bug.
These guys seemed to notice I was interested, and circled back directly overhead.
And that's all I have to say about that.
